  EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems – Call for Applications for 4-year Funded PhD and EngD Studentships
We are looking for one hundred STEM graduates excited to improve the world via impactful research in new and novel metallic materials for power generation, transport, sustainability and recyclables, in a rapidly evolving digital manufacturing era using advanced computing techniques.
  Investigating hydride growth mechanisms in zirconium alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Prof M Preuss
Applications accepted all year round
Zirconium alloys are most commonly used as the fuel cladding material in nuclear reactors. Hydrogen uptake in these alloys occurs as a result of aqueous corrosion during service, and the absorbed hydrogen precipitate out of solution as hydrides once its solubility limit in the alloy is exceeded.
  Developing the next generation of plasma-facing materials by understanding the formation of irradiation-induced defects in tungsten
  Dr E Prestat, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Tungsten (W) is the primary material of choice to be used for plasma-facing components (first wall and divertor) because of its superior high-temperature properties, neutron irradiation resistance and low retention of implanted tritium.
  Developing Cleaner Graphite For Next Generation Nuclear Reactors.
  Research Group: Nuclear Engineering
  Dr A Jones, Prof B Marsden, Dr C Sharrad
Applications accepted all year round
We are offering a fully funded PhD scholarship to examine the behaviour and performance of graphite to be used in Gen IV nuclear systems.
  Odd metal clusterings and peculiar phases in nuclear extraction processes
  Prof A Masters
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
At the end of a nuclear reaction, many countries seek to recover unspent uranium and plutonium from the spent fuel. The most common way to do this is to dissolve the spent fuel in nitric acid, add some oil and also a special ligand.
  Evaluating the structural integrity of nuclear materials by long duration neutron diffraction
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr K Yan
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
In nuclear reactor, structural components experience complex cyclic loading associated with start-up/shut-down and following electricity demand.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Nuclear (NGN)
Next Generation Nuclear PhD Studentships Next Generation Nuclear is a partnership between the Universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield.
